Essential Oils: The Benefits and Uses

12 December 2019

Guest blog by Celestine Hade, Director, Botany Essentials.

The aromatherapy benefit of essential oils has long been recognised and acknowledged as not only pleasing to the senses, but also of psychological benefit in promoting a sense of relaxation or rejuvenation (depending on the essential oil or essential oil blend in a product).

Do yourself a favour – explore the world of aromatherapy and take a bath with our Essential Oil Bath Soaks.

True aromatherapy uses only 100% natural and pure essential oils. This was of paramount importance when Gewürzhaus approached Botany Essentials to create a unique and stunning range of essential oil soaks that will transcend your regular bath ritual. Pure essential oils are highly concentrated liquid essences of plants and are not the same as fragrant oils or perfumes. Fragrant oils are made to synthetically mimic nature and may cause allergies, asthma and headaches. Adding essential oil infused salts to your bath is a great way to unwind and take a break from the everyday pressures of our busy lives as well as help promote a restful sleep so you can wake refreshed and ready for anything.
